4H Club Olive Grove – Marion County
In 2013, Jonael Bosques (pictured), the small farms agent for Marion County contacted the Florida Olive Council and suggested planting a test plot to be maintained by the Marion County 4H club. The Council donated olive trees of several varieties and provided funds for maintenance. Bosques planted 5 varieties and set up the irrigation. The grove is located at the 4H club property in south Marion County. Margaret Carden, UF-IFAS Agent in Marion County works with the 4H club.
